5 Ways to Celebrate Your Original Wedding Date After Postponing

How To Celebrate Your Original Wedding Date If You Had To Postpone

You’re not alone.

If you’ve have to postpone your wedding because of COVID-19, you’re not alone. But we know that does not make it any easier. When your original wedding date comes, it is totally understandable to feel sad and confused. But don’t let this stop you from celebrating anyway!

Your original wedding date has significance. You’ve been planning this day for months, maybe years. So take back the date! Celebrate the day in the safety of your own home, while following CDC and government guidelines. Here are some of our favorite ways to celebrate your original wedding date.

Open Wedding Gifts

Use your original wedding date to open a few wedding gifts. They are already taking up space in your home, so why not open a few and put them to use? Opening gifts is exciting and will bring some joy to the day. Plus you can get a head start on your thank you cards!

Enjoy Your Favorite Meal

While you cannot go dine in at your favorite restaurant, many local restaurants are still open for takeout. Consider ordering takeout from your favorite local restaurant. Pop a bottle of champagne, or create your signature cocktails that you had planned for your reception. Get dressed up to make it feel even more meaningful. Now you don’t have to break out the wedding dresses and tuxedos (unless you want to), but bring out the white outfit you’ve been saving for your wedding events.

Eat Cake

Who doesn’t love cake?! Cake is a must for any wedding celebration. Call your favorite local bakery and order a cake for the two of you to enjoy. If your wedding day bakery is open, order a smaller version of what you had planned for your wedding day.

Have Your First Dance

Practice your first dance in your living room! Light a candle, find your song on Spotify, and enjoy the moment. You’ll always remember your first dance in the comfort of your own home. After your first dance, keep celebrating! Dancing will definitely help relieve some stress and just enjoy the moment.

Say Your Vows

While you may not be having a formal ceremony on this day, use this time together to say your vows. You planned to mark your commitment on this date, so why not still say your vows? You’ll still have to legalize your commitment in the future, but saying your vows together is a beautiful way to take back your wedding date.
